Facial Paralysis Treatment


Facial paralysis takes place whilst someone is unable to move a few or all the muscle tissues on one or two sides of the face. Facial paralysis is the stoppage of facial movement because of nerve damage. A person’s facial muscles turn weak and occur on both sides of the face.

Facial paralysis is caused by the following:

  • Damage or swelling in the facial nerve, these nerves carry signals of the brain to the face muscles.
  • Damage to a particular area of the brain that is involved in sending signals to the face muscles.

The facial nerve controls the facial activities like smiling, blinking, and other associated facial movements. It also affects a person’s ability to propagate his/her emotion.

Symptoms of Facial Paralysis

  • Facial paralysis in one side ( rarely in both sides )
  • Loss of blinking control on the paralysis side
